Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
(1 Cor 12:4-7)

What if we begin with the assumption that God is in every person we meet and creation itself?  How does / could / should this impact the ways in which we relate to all around us?  These are the foundational questions of Respect Justice Camp an innovative conference-like program geared to adults 18+ that includes plenary sessions, activities, immersive experiences, worship, food and fellowship in an effort to explore ways to live the Marks of Mission.  

Unmasking what is hidden:

Everyone has a story to tell.  Some stories are at the edge of everyday experience, less common, less familiar, sometimes even marginalised.  This is our opportunity to share stories, to listen with open ears and hearts.  This is an opportunity to build respect for those we don’t often hear so that we can celebrate their gifts and walk alongside in their struggles.  All are included!

Check out our immersion teasers on our Facebook page or on Twitter @CampRespect.

(Note: the title “Justice Camp” links this to a National Anglican Church of Canada program began in 2005.  Apologies to those who like camping but there are no tents or traditional aspects of camping that are part of Justice Camp – we will be staying in wonderful college dormitories where each suite containing 2 bedrooms has its own washroom.) 

This camp is hosted by the Diocese of Huron in the Deanery of Essex with the hopes of continuing the wonderful tradition of engaging people of faith in issues of justice.

Where’s Essex? 

The Deanery of Essex is the South West Corner of Ontario and the end of the 401.  It includes the beautiful City of Windsor with incredible riverfront walking trails, lots of parkland, a spirited history, a diversity of cultures, food options and festivals, and quaint village-like regions around the city.  Outside of Windsor there are great, award-winning wineries and the Southern tip of the country – Point Pelee.  There are daily flights in and out of Windsor from Toronto, Montreal and Calgary as well as daily train and bus travel making it easily accessible from anywhere in the country.  For more information about what to see and do in the Windsor-Essex region click here.

Summer is Coming.  So is Respect Justice “Camp”.  Call your friends!  Don’t miss out!

A word from the Bishop of Huron about Respect Justice Camp

Before you register:

Check out our website for information about programming, click here to get a sense of our agenda and decide on your top three choices for immersion experiences.  (Click here to review immersion options.) Space is limited and allocated on a first come, first serve basis so the earlier you register, the more likely you are to get the immersion of your choice. (Note: the mental health immersion is now closed and unavailable for registration).

The online registration form has been adapted from the Diocese of Huron youth camp (Huron Church Camp) to provide a secure process through which to register and pay.  Those who are working on funding through their church/diocese are encouraged to complete the registration form now – there is space to indicate this in the form.

Our goal is to ensure this experience is as inclusive as possible.  The registration process includes opportunities to identify any special needs you might have – dietary, physical, and any other ways that we can ensure that everyone has the best possible experience.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our registrar: The Rev’d Canon Gerry Adam [email protected] or the chair of the planning team: The Rev’d Chris Brouillard-Coyle [email protected]
